I like this!

Dodgers move Nomar to 3rd base, Loney to first, and sit down Wilson Betemit.  Betemit is #2 on my Dodgers Shit list, right behind that pathetic-ass, loss magnet Joe Beimel.

Nomar Garciaparra is moving across the diamond.

After spending the past season and a half as the Los Angeles Dodgers' first baseman, Garciaparra will move to third base, perhaps as early as Friday.

"We're trying to get ourselves in a position where we can be the best we can be, and that option right now is there for us," manager Grady Little said Monday. "Nomar's 100 percent on board. He's been over there before. It's not a strange place for him."

It opens up a chance for streaking James Loney to play first base. Loney is hitting .429 since being recalled from the minor leagues June 10.

"This has a lot to do with the way James Loney is swinging the bat and the way he's playing, too," Little said. "The primary factor is to try to help us win games. And we feel like this is a move we want to give a shot at right now."

Doin' the happy dance! Now if they can just straighten out the bullpen.....
